I think the perfect way to end the nuclear stand-off is for the US and its allies to invade North Korea and change the regime before it deploys nuclear weapons.
North Korea has already developed nuclear weapons, thanks to US stupidity for wasting time on Iraq.
But although North Korea has nuclear weapons there is still time for the US plus South Korea and Japan to strike before it develops the capability further.
I believe that North Korea will use the negotiations with the US and its allies to give it more time to build nuclear weapons. But if the North refuses to negotiate, it is more likely America will attack. As everyone can see, Pyongyang is basically making a fool out of the US and the US does not realise it.
Remember, every second longer the US negotiates with the North Korea, the more nukes it builds.
And do not forget that North Korea is a much bigger threat than Saddam Hussein. Simple Hong Kong people like me can easily tell that the US is making a big mistake attacking Iraq and not North Korea. That is why I say strike now before it is too late.
